Oooh! Stunning form and color! I saw a gigantic red poppy in a garden today, but it was to far away to photograph. But you've done it for me. 8^)

Such a coincidence -- I also posted photos of red poppies today on my blog. It must be the season. I love the form of the Italian poppy petals, and how your photo takes us into the center of the flower.

Oops -- I misread!I see now that it isn't an Italian poppy, but that you translated the word for poppy in different languages. :-)

Romanian: mac (probably the shortest word :D)

What a nice happy face! I appreciate the various translations, too. Nice work :)

What a beautiful flower! And you pictured the central part so well to catch the colour contrast perfectly.
